Henry VIII's fifth queen is commonly regarded as the stupid girl who became fatally entangled with lovers and ended up, aged only 20, on the executioner's block. In this book, the first new study of Catherine in 25 years, Loades looks again at Catherine's sexuality and her fateful marriage, approaching her story through the intensely personal nature of Henry's government and the rise of the Howard family in court politics after the demise of Thomas Cromwell.
